Phaedra Parks Talks Apollo’s Arrest & Cheating Rumors
By: Amanda Anderson-Niles
We told you several days ago that RHOA star Phaedra Parks would be going on the “Ellen DeGeneres Show” to open up about her breakup with Apollo, and the reality star even addressed the cheating rumors as well.
Here are the highlights of the interview.
On whether or not she had any idea Apollo was back into criminal activities, she says:
“I mean, I work. I just got my fifth college degree. And so I’m pretty much an overachiever. I have two very small children. I just stopped breast-feeding three months ago. So, I didn’t have any idea this was going on until he called me and he said, ‘Hey, I’ve been arrested and I’m having this problem, but it’s not true.’ So I went out of my way to get him the best attorneys, the best investigators, and to do anything I could, because I’m an attorney myself and so I wanted him to have the best. So we could fight this together, but obviously it did not turn out like that.”
Phaedra even says Apollo’s prison record wasn’t a red flag because she really thought he changed:
“Well, to be honest, he had been to prison and he was a changed person. So the person I married, I thought he was changed.”
On the cheating rumors (which were reportedly started by Apollo himself), she says:
“They’re saying that I had an affair with a man from Africa named Chocolate. Now, everybody knows that I do like a Snicker bar every once in a while, but it’s definitely not a man from Africa that I’ve ever had an affair with. I mean, It’s just absurd.
“I think sometimes when people are hurting they do things to hurt other people. There’s been a lot of lashing out from Apollo because I think he’s in a place, a very angry place, and I think you hurt the people closest to you sometimes. It’s unfortunate.”
